Today's polish is Mermaid Magic from Hard Candy's Glitteratzi Nails collection. The polish is certainly glittery! I only applied one coat and it is absolutely filled with glitter.
It's strange. Normally I love when a polish is filled with glitter, but I'm not really feeling this one. I love the colors of the glitter, deep metallic turquoise and shiny purple, but I feel like there's actually too much. It almost looks a little messy!
It's not terrible, but I'm thinking it might just look better on a different color. I applied it over Elf Mint Cream. I went with a sea green shade since that's what I thought of first when I read the name Mermaid Magic. It looked good when I tested the combination, but on my nails it's pretty "meh!"
Perhaps a darker blue or a more similar shade would work better under it. Also beware since it's so full of glitter! I painted my middle finger first, and you can see that one has the most on it. The index looks a little better to me. I would suggest trying to get as much off of the brush as possible first!
Verdict: I like it, but I just need to find the right combination! I love the colors of the two glitters, and there is definitely enough glitter in this polish, but I guess I just need to experiment more.
I bought Mermaid Magic for $4.00 at my local Walmart. Walmart has since added them to their website for $4.00 as well! Also while it is only $4.00, the polish is also only 0.26 oz instead of the typical 0.5 oz. So it might be more affordable, but just be aware that it's just a really tall mini bottle!
